We had 39 submissions for names to name the 4 "streets" of the Market - many really awesome suggestions! The randomizer chose Donna Skinn, Melisa Thomas, Jessie Tea, and Janice Valois to win $10 each in Wednesday Market Bucks. The upstairs committee will now go through the names, narrow it down and we'll have a poll in a few weeks to determine the final outcomes. Thanks for playing along! ... See MoreSee Less
Congrats Jessie Tea!

Contest time - Where the streets have no names...
Sometimes, it's hard to tell visitors where to find an upstairs booth - up that way, halfway down, on the May St side...
So let's name the streets and avenues!
Comment below with your suggestion for street or avenue names (we'll need 2 of each). Suggested names should have a connection to the Market or Northern Ontario, but NOT be the name of a vendor/business. We'd love if you want to explain why the name(s) would be good. You could also theme them so all 4 names fit together.
From the list of names people contribute, we'll narrow it down and then have a poll in 2 weeks to select the winners and they'll be revealed in late November. If your name is one of the winners, you'll get a prize.
4 commenters on this post will be randomly selected to win $10 in Wednesday Market bucks as a thanks for participating. You can comment multiple times if you have good ideas but you'll get only 1 entry to win.
We'll select the $10 winners tomorrow at 1 pm. ... See MoreSee Less

I think it would be great to see in memoriam names for those vendors that we lost prematurely. The streets could also have a picture and bio that shares their info and how they played a role in the growth of the TBCM. This would be, of course, if the families agree to participate. I would love to see names like: Myhal Ave, Rutland Drive, Marty Street and Volkar Way. *not necessarily those road terms*. As a fellow vendor, I think it would be great to have a reminder of those friendly faces we’ve said goodbye to all too soon.
How about some Ojibwe words? - please check these with someone who better knows the language! These are from a google search!! Minogin Ave. (‘It grows well’), Ozhitoon St. (‘Make it’), Gibozan Ave (‘bake it in an oven), Maamawi St. (‘Together’)
